Public Description:  

H.R. 2092, the Save America Comprehensive Immigration Act, would double to 960,000 the number of visas available to family-based immigrants and it would grant nonimmigrant status to any would-be family-based immigrant for whom a visa is not immediately available. It would also grant amnesty to illegal aliens who have been in the United States for the past five years, who are able to marry a U.S. citizen or permanent resident or find an employer willing to sponsor them, who are Haitian or Liberian, or who have been granted Temporary Protected Status. Further, it would double to 110,000 the number of visas that are given away on the basis of a random lottery each year.
